Every step, and every turn brings you to the window of an intriguing gallery, unique sculptures and jewelry and fine antiques to behold. There is plenty to capture your attention long enough to idle the day away.

If filling your social calendar is what you crave then Downtown Sarasota will keep you busy with an abundance of activity choices ranging from black tie affairs to casual flip-flop BBQ’s. A thriving and vibrant community with every recreational opportunity imaginable under the sun. From your choice of approximately 60 different golf courses nearby to an abundance of water sports and everything in between including galas, fundraisers, luncheons, designer showcases, car shows, art gallery events and so much more.

If culture is your thing, then you’ll be certain to make a bee-line towards the Towles Court Artists Colony, many live theatres, Historic Burns Square, and the farmers’ market of every Saturday morning. Furthermore, on the first Friday of every month, Palm Avenue and Main Streets keep the doors open to their restaurants, boutiques, and galleries, to create a festive air in which you can shop as much as you please. Meanwhile, live entertainment, area vendors, and special celebrations will surround you and please you, making the First Friday Walk an event that is not to be missed.

And don’t forget those beautiful Gulf Coast beaches-many of them are just minutes from Downtown Sarasota. Whether you are in the mood for a quiet, sunset stroll, an energetic walk through the sand and surf or a family picnic along the shore, Longboat Key, Lido Beach, Siesta Key, South Lido Park and Turtle Beach lend themselves to the perfect setting.
